Since he was unable to differentiate between youkai and human, the young Natsume thought that this youkai was just another human that was a guest to that family that day.
Therefore the young Natsume brought out more utensils to accommodate all the guests presence at dining table. His female guardian asked Natsume why the extra utensils, as there were only three of them dining.
That's when Natsume told his guardian about this youkai.
While in anime, the youkai seems to be more like a male, but the appearance look closer to a female in the manga.
